“Roughest out this season, sir.”
The questioner was none other than
Bill Hayward, but such a change had
come over him that one could scarce
ly recognize him. His overcoat was
buttoned tightly about his neck and
his hands hung desperately to the
rail. With a sigh he returned to the
state room and the berth for an
other day.
To be sure this Incident is not of
recent occurrence, but it deserves
mention. For the first time in his
life Bill tasted of the sickness that
comes to all landlubbers, when he
returned from San Francisco after
the track meet in August, and the
little box of “Mothersill’s Seasick
Pills” was of no avail. After two
days on board, Bill followed the ad
vice of the little saving, “Any port in
a storm,” and disembarked at As
toria to partake of his first meal
since leaving the exposition city.

Official Coach and Other Re
munerations Will Serve
as Incentives.
Freshmen aspirants for/football
are to be given a chance this year
and the years following in a plan
that Coach Bezdek has worked out
and which he will place in vogue
this year. That is of giving the
freshmen football team official stand
ing, so far as is possible, with an
official coach and a regular and as
good a schedule as possible. Class
numerals will be awarded to mem
bers making the team along with
“The idea of the plan is to get
more men into athletics and the
game, and to give the men that do
not make the Varsity squad an op
portunity to play football, building
them up physically and mentally,”
said Coach Bezdek this morning.
“The boys will be able to have their
fun as well as those that make the
team, and will at the same time be
given an opportunity to learn some
thing of the game.
“We will attempt to give the
Freshmen this year five games, and
expect to schedule two games with
the O. A. C. Frosh, one here and one
at Corvallis, one with Albany college,
one with Eugene High School, and
one with another high school. It is
a little difficult at present to pick
out some of the men that will be
eligible for the Freshmen team, as
they are trying out for the Varsity.
But as soon as the season is more
advanced, the Freshmen that are in
cluded' on the Varsity squad will be
allowed to try out for the Freshman

“Husky”Hoskins Receives Visit
From “0. A. C. Friend,”»
But Does Not Fall.
Freshman Star Maintains He
Came For An Education,
Not Athletics.
Heaven, it seems, will not protect
an honest football man from hearing
tempting offers of a rival college,
according to a story which gained
circulation here, to the effect that
“Husky” Hoskins, Coach Bezdiek's
phenomenal find of the season, had
been approached by a man who called'
himself Mr. Reynolds of the exten
sion department of Oregon Agricul
tural College.
i It seems that Mr. Reynolds rambled
into town in a sporty runabout, in
quired of the Freshman who first an
swered the call. He posedi as a
friend of Hoskins from Echo. The
“friend,” whom Hoskins says he had
never seen before in his life, came
down to business in a jiffy, dwelling
on the educational advantages of
O. A. C. and especially featuring a
course in animal husbandry. Only
once did Mr. Reynolds wander from
his main subject, and that was to
casually inquire, “How much are you
out here?”
Charley Hoskins informed the man
that he was out exactly what it was
costing his father to put him through
college. Moreover, he said that he
had thoroughly examined the educa
tional advantages of O. A. C., before
entering Oregon. “It was for a col
lege-education, not for athletics, that
I came to college,” said Hoskins. The
Fresman find entered Oregon, hav
ing never before donned a football
suit. Hoskins is being put through
school by his parents, and is neither
working on the campus or in Eugene.
The University of Oregon is op
posed to the athletic policy of the
supposed member of the O. A. C.
faculty, and President P. L. Camp
bell, on hearing of the incident em
phasized the point that discriminat
ing in favor of athletics in offering
work to preparatory students con
stitutes an inducement which should
not prevail among the colleges and
that Oregon practiced no such dis
ori mi nation.
iStudents refuse to believe that
Hoskins was sought out only for the
purpose of acquainting him with edu-»
catlonal advantages. Student opin
ion interprets it as athletic aggrand
One more man becomes a hero at

Jessie Purdy wadad out to the

tracting the attention of all the on
lookers, announced she was going to
swim across the deep water and back
to the haven of safety.
Just then Cora HosfoH, who had
been standing on the diving tower,
plunged into the race. All eyes were
turned to witness the performance.
Scarcely had she hit the water, when
cries for help, femininely gargled,
came to the people about the tank,
from the pool. Several men imme
diately dived in to rescue Miss Purdy,
but Clark Burgard, who has had ex
perience with water from association
with Bill of Deck-Hand-to-Captain
fame, stretched out upon the boards
and grabbed her just as she was
sinking for the last time.

Special Effort Is Being Made to
Interest “Aggie” Alumni to
Co-operate in Plan.
Wide Publicity Campaign Will
Be Launched to Make
Plan a Success.
“A glad time, with everybody
counted in,” is to be the motto for
the great Homecoming Day planned
for November'20, when Oregon meets
O. A. C. on the home field for the
first time since 1907.
Former sons and daughters of O.
A. C. will meet and mingle with
their ' Oregon” neighbors on the new
bleachers to be erecteidi for the ac
commodation of 10,000 people, who
will witness the great game, accord
ing to the prediction of Lamar Tooze
president of the Associated Students.
Special notices are being sent out
by the fraternities and sororities to
their alumni members and old grads,
throughout the state, and it is plan
ned to have as many high school
guests as possible. President Tooze
is planning to semd> a communication
to Oregon Agricultural College, stat
ing that their alumni will also be
welcome visitors. Arrangements are
now being made for the entertain
ment of the visitors.
It has been estimated by the com
mittee in charge that $1,000 will be
spent in the building of new bleach
ers. At present but 3,000 people
can be accommodated.
Don Orput and A. R. Tiffany, who
are the instigators of the plan, are
working on arrangements. A “Home
Coming Special” will be run from
Portland, where the work of arous
ing enthusiasm is in the hands of
Don Orput and Harold Fitzgtbbons.
A dance will be given in the even
ing after the game, also a stag
smoker, and several stunts are also
being planned for the amusement of
the visitors.
The Student Council has selected
a special committee to attend to all
arangements. This committee is
composed of Max Sommer, chairman;
Bothwell Avison, J-.ouise Bailey, Gen
evieve Shaver and Carl Beck. A
meeting of this committee will be
held tomorrow night after Student
Council meeting.

Resolution Introduced Last
Year Before Meeting
September 23.
The severance of athletic relations
between the University of Oregon and
all other collegiate institutions will
be considered at the faculty meeting
of September 23. This measure was
introduced by Dr. Barnett at a meet
ing last June, and it was laid on the
table for discussion.
The main objections to Intercol
legiate relations, as given by those
in favor of this measure, are: 1st.
That intercollegiate athletics seri
ously affect scholarship; 2d, that they
professionalize athletics and pro
hibit the general student body from
participating; 3d, thrt the student
tax is increased, thus excluding many
students of moderate means rrom the
The plan is to confine all athletic
activity entirely to the student body.
The text of the measure In Question
is given, verbatim:
■‘W]hereas, the faculty has, by a
unanimous vote, passed a resolution
favoring the ultimate withdrawal of
the University from Inter-collegiate
contests, and
‘‘Whereas, the interests of the Uni
versity now demand such a with
drawal, be it
“Resolved, That after the scholas
tic year 1915-16, the University shall
participate In no intercollegiate ath
letic contests."

Up Well.
With Multnomah Game Near,
the Squad Shows Need of All
Around Improvement.
By Chester Fee.
With the Multnomah game a week
off, the Varsity went through a 4B
minute scrimmage with the scrubs,
displaying as usual the by-this-time
accustomed steam-roller variety of
speed and agility. Not only did the
line men act like runners in a slow
race, but the backs and ends plodlded
along like children on their way to
school. At times the play was in
teresting, but on the whole there
was nothing of a startling order dis
played in the lineup and it seems that
Bezdek will ultimately hit upon some
thing that looks better than the ideas
he is working on at present.
Captain “Anse” Cornell is coach
ing Monteith as an understudy in the
pivot position, in case of accident.
He seems to learn and is fairly quick
at mastering the ruldlments.
As usual Johnny Beckett, the giant
tackle, was in every play. The longer
Johnny plays the better he looks, so
no one need be surprised if he cov
ers himself with glory in the coming
seaso.n. The rest of the line have
not shown any stellar tendencies as
yet and the way they are going,
even though they have hitched their
wagons to stars, it will be some time
before they enjoy their first ride
along the ethereal paths.
Improvement was noticeable among
the ends. Rlsley and Bartlett of
the first squad, and Mitchell and
Teggert, on the second team, showed
well for early season, and by the emd>
of the year ought to be numbered
among the men well up In the ex
tremity end of the game,
been putting the boys through, there
were enough signs and actions show
ing fatigue to make one thing clear
—if the team doeB not do some hard
digging this week and develop more
wind and endurance, they are going
to have a defeat chalked up against
them for their first round. Mult
nomah has a team that has worked
hard for nearly a month and are
much farther advanced In every de
partment, so It will assuredly be
some battle.
Noticeable among the errors were
the lack of footwork, Inability to
pass, and the idea that cleverness
was in no way essential. It has long
been acknowledged that the “bust
ing” game does not compare with
the quick an'd agile work, but despite
the coach’s Instructions the fellows
hang to it as tenaciously as a bulldog
collars a cat.
Against the hard fighting scrubs
the first team scored five touch
downs, two in the second quarter,
one in the third, and two In the last
stage of the game.
Hoskins, the freshman desired by
O. A. C., slipped and glided about
for the first score from the 25-yard
line. He Is looking good for a man
entirely new to the game. In the
third spasm, Monteith and Rlsley
participated in a forward pass that
netted 40 yards and was of a pleas
ing variety.
Among other men going well were,
Bigbee, halfback on the second string,
and Miller, a Hue man from Coos
